IONITY premieres new High Power Charger at the Frankfurt Motor Show


IONITY, a joint venture of BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG, presented its innovative and new High-Power charger and welcomed additional shareholder Hyundai Motor Group on board. The joint venture’s mission is to make pan-European electromobility a reality.


IONITY's new, award-winning High-Power
chargers are instantly recognisable thanks to their lighting concept
and deliver a significantly improved user experience compared to what is
currently available in Europe. The innovative styling is the result of
intensive user research carried out by Designworks and is intended to
make the charging experience more comfortable, more secure and less
hassle. The IONITY High-Power charger with its iconic looks and improved
easy-to-use functionality - supports its vision to accelerate
e-mobility by leading High Power Charging.

At 2.6 metres in
height, the all-new IONITY High-Power charger features a unique
multi-functional LED light ring - The Halo - acting as a beacon on the
highways at night and making it easier for drivers to find stations on

The light ring communicates the chargers availability
depending on the colour as well as providing a well-lit area helpful
for drivers charging their cars during the hours of darkness. It
communicates the state of charge by changing colour. As well as its
distinct LED beacon, the new IONITY High-Power charger features advanced
Human Machine Interface (HMI) screens, making the process of charging a
vehicle as simple and stress-free as possible. Information is presented
to the customer in a structured menu, which is easy to understand with
commonality across all European markets.

The IONITY HPC chargers
which have already been installed across Europe will be updated
accordingly in order to be able to incorporate the same menu. Customers
can select from up to ten languages across Europe . This is supported by
a 24/7 hotline which from October will be able to respond in the seven
most-frequently used European languages.

The charging cable
management system is now far more user friendly thanks to the helpful
repositioning of the cable so that it feeds from above. In addition,
this makes the cable more flexible when approaching your vehicle and
plugging in.

Michael Hajesch, IONITY CEO, said: “We are confident
our new IONITY High-Power chargers will make a significant contribution
to e-mobility in general and to the European IONITY HPC network in
particular. Forward-looking product design with innovative lighting
solutions, user-friendly cable management, advanced digital user
interface and class-leading architecture will make EV charging more
convenient and safer for customers.”

IONITY's technology partner
Tritium is the first manufacturer to industrialize the new IONITY
High-Power charger on a large scale with its market leading 350kW
capacity. The charger incorporates a fully flush compartment with no
bumps, no exposed screws or pop rivets - the charging point is entirely
smooth which further demonstrates the high standard achieved in the
design and engineering. The European IONITY HPC network will benefit
significantly from these new products, with the first IONITY station to
feature the new High-Power charger opening in Denmark this autumn.

CEO and Co-Founder, David Finn, said: “These are true state-of-the-art
chargers, which will change the very look and feel of highways across
the continent. When people see these bright beacons shining in the
distance, they'll know that they get served in a most convenient, safe
and fastest rate possible.”

IONITY's initial network of 400
High-Power charging stations is planned to be deployed by the end of
2020, and will include many of the new IONITY High-Power chargers.
Approximately 140 IONITY HPC stations are currently up and running with
over 50 under construction. The 350kW charging network is future-proofed
while at the same time serving today's EVs. Located on or near the
highway, they make e-mobility a convenient, reliable and everyday
experience. By teaming up with strategic site partners more than 95% of
the planned IONITY network has already been covered with a corresponding
range of good quality amenities available on site.

High-Power charging network across 24 European countries is powered by
100% renewable energy. By offering only renewable energy IONITY is
acting responsibly to reduce the individual CO2 footprint of all
customers charging at IONITY stations.
